Queen Elaine I 

Quartet Festival 
To be Revived 
At '65 May Day 

The senior class of 1965 will 
present, as its class project, 
the George Fox College Gospel 
Quartet Festival on Sunday, 
May 2, at 3:00 p.m. at Renne 
Junior High School auditorium. 

The purpose of the Festival 
is two-fold. First, to provide 
a time of Gospel singing and 
testimony; and second, to give 
the different quartets in the 
area an opportunity to observe 
one another and compare styles 
and techniques. 

In former years, a tradition- 
al Quartet Festival was held 
annually in Newberg under the 
sponsorship of the college. This 
year's program will attempt to 
revive this tradition after an 
eight-year time lapse since the 
last Quartet Festival In 1957. 

Quartets scheduled to par- 
ticipate include a GFC faculty 
quartet composed of Dean Lou- 
than and Professors GUmore, 
Lichti, and Hagen; a quartet 
from Northwest Christian col- 
lege in Eugene; the GFC Clark- 
Macy quartet; the Victory-4 
quartet of Multnomah School 
of the Bible; and the host quar- 
tet, GFC's Kingsmen. 

Allen Hadley, Christian Ed- 
ucation director of the First 
Friends Church in Portland, 
will serve as master of cere- 
monies. No admission fee will 
be charged, but a free-will of- 
fering will be taken at the af- 
ternoon Festival. 

Harold Clark, lead tenor of 
the Kingsmen, has served as 
chairman of the planning com- 
mittee for the Festival.

Prepare (or 

"Hana-Ki" (blossom tree in 
Hawaiian) centers the theme of 
the 1965 May Day festivities 
around the reign of Queen 
Elaine I. 

' Elaine Kunkle, a junior lang- 
uage arts major preparing for 
the mission field, comes to 
George Fox from Ramona, Cali- 
fornia, where she reigned as 
Annual Queen her senior year 
in high school. The Kunkle six 
include an older brother, Har- 
ley, an older sister, Terri Lou, 
and a younger brother, Chuck. 
Her activities at GFC include 
president of Foreign Missions 
Fellowship, treasurer of the ju- 
nior class, andi member of the 
committee for organizing a wo- 
men's association. 

Queen Elaine's warm person- 
ality is especially effective in 
working with younger children. 
She spends her summers work- 
ing in a home for mentally re- 
tarded children, and here in 
Newberg she teaches a Sunday 
school class at Eola Village, an 
immigrant camp. 

GF's May Day monarch tes- 
tifies, "My purpose in life is to 
let the love of Christ shine 
through me to others. The 
words of the song by Maude 
Ray best sum up my thoughts: 
'To love someone more dearly 
every day ... to help a wan- 
dering child to find his way 
... to ponder over a noble 
thought and pray . . . and smile 
when evening falls . . . this is 
my task.' 

"Sincere love for others 
shown by our words, thoughts, 
and actions is the way to help 
people find Christ. This love 
expressedi by the Apostle Paul 
in I Cor. 13:4-8 is the love 
which will fill us when we give 
our hearts completely to the 

The May Day court selected 
by Queen Elaine is as follows: 
senior Linda Gulley, a Bible 
and Christian Education major 
from Rupert, Idaho, will be es- 
corted by her fiance, Charles 
Bloodgood of Tigard. 

Sister to the queen is prin- 
cess Terri Lou Kunkle, a home 
economics major, also from Ra- 
mona, California, whose talent 
is demonstrated through the 
making of four out of the five 
May Day outfits for the court. 
Dale Rinard of Sunnyside, Cali- 
fornia, will be Terri's escort. 

Senior Barbara Berg of Ta- 
coma, Washington, majoring in 
psychology - sociology, will be 
escorted by student body pres- 
ident Ron Stansell of Home- 
dale, Idaho. 
- Junior Diane Ball, religion - 
philosophy major from Silver- 
ton, Oregon, is a well-known 
writer (and) proctor) who is 
planning for work on the mis- 
sion field after graduation. 
Howard Macy of Wheaton, Dli- 
nois, will escort princess Diane. 

Flower girls will be Cindy 
Gilmore, daughter of Spanish 
professor Robert Gilmore, and 
Susan Hockett, daughter of 
West Chehalem Friend's pastor 
Gene Hockett. The crown bear- 
er will be Mike Comfort; and 
Rickey and Kenny Comfort will 
be train bearers. All are sons 
of Gene and Betty Comfort, 
missionaries to Bolivia on fur- 

Jamie to Serve 
In Nepal Mission 

James Louis Sandoz, known 
to his GFC classmates of the 
graduating class of 1964 as 
"Jamie," has received recent 
verification of his appointment 
to serve his two years of alter- 
nate service as a medical tech- 
nologist under the United Mis- 
sion to Nepal in Kathmandu, 

Jamie is scheduled to leave 
this June to begin his work at 
the Medical Center on July 1, 
1965. While there, Jamie will 
work directly under Dr. W. E. 
DeVol, an Ohio Friends mis- 
sionary now directing the Cen- 

oauuraay, may x, iat>5 

The Axis of May Day 

A prosaic welcome to all parents, alumni, and 
friends has traditionally appeared in the Crescent, 
and thus it would seem in order to meaningfully 
further this custom. 

The GFC student body sincerely welcomes 
you to share this short, festive week-end with us. 
And don't misunderstand— we really mean it, de- 
spite the fact that running the gamut of May Day 
activities will keep us from studying and nigh ex- 
haust us. For we believe that May Day should 
and can have a higher role in our college than a 
superficial PR playday. 

Ideally, May Day is not conceived for the pur- 
pose of impressing our guests with the spiritual 
or material prograss which George Fox is said to 
be making. As beautiful as our campus is, as im- 
pressive as the architecture of new buildings 
might be, as proficient as our athletes are, even 

as lovely and dedicated as our Queen Elaine is 

we would not laud these as the greatest assets of 
our college. We are proud of them—but we have 
a greater Cause to present this day. 

We should, as a Christian college commun- 
ity, radiate the presence of Jesus Christ through 
our May Day festivities. If you, as our guests, 
leave this campus without having felt the touch 
of this Christ upon your own lives, May Day 1965 
has failed. But we pray believing that it shall 
not be so.

The Kind' of People 

By Ron Stansell, ASGFO President 
Once upon a campus time, a happy alumnus returned to his 
rejuvenated alma mater, proudly praising its "great leap for- 
ward." Whatever this might have meant to him* it reminds me 
that no college can ever really accomplish more than the people 
behind it. Buildings and money are great, but the use of them 
is more important. In short, a glorious "great leap" is sort of 
a shallow substitute for people. 

As a retiring Student Council member, it seems to me that 
this same idea applies to our new slate of officers. Only dedi- 
cated Christians have a chance to lead GF students forward to 
consistent Christian goals. 

We talk about changes on our campus and changes there are 
Changes may come, but George Fox will never outgrow the need 
for people— the right kind of people. 

Let me dedicate these few words of advice to our newly- 
elected ASGFC President, Fred Gregory. Fred, GF has a great 
future; I'm convinced of that. It has great opportunities for 
student leadership also, opportunities that you and your council 
dare not overtook. Make next year a good one; plan ahead, strive 
for integrity, and be a little visionary while you're at it. 

Student government wasn't created just to buck administra- 
tion policy. Yet every council member has a mind of his own 
and he should used it. Student body elections are over, and coun- 
cil is poised, ready to initiate new ideas and programs. Council 
your "leap" might well be into darkness unless you establish 
personal goals to do a good job. Likewise, you as Council mem- 
bers need our support. And you have it! 

New ACCO Band 
To Perform at GF 

On the twelfth day of the 
month of May the students and 
faculty of George Fox college 
will hear the newly formed 
ACCO band directed by Mr. 
Dennis Hagen for a chapel per- 

A concert of exciting band 
andi brass choir music will be 
presented by the 45-piece group 
and a smaller brass choir, made 
up of instrumentalists from 
George Fox, Cascade and War- 
ner Pacific colleges. Each 
group has practiced individual- 
ly, and all three meet together 
once every two weeks. 

Numbers on the program will 
include "Tulsa," a symphonic 
portrait in oil by Don GUIls, 
"Totem Pole," by Eric Ostor- 
ling, and "Procession of the 
Knights" by Richard Wagner. 
Also included will be a number 
by Charles Gounod entitled "Le 
Reine de Saba," "Athalanta" by 
Aurelio Bornell, and "Inscrip- 
tions for Brass" by Corwln H. 

YFC Continentals 
To Give Concert 
Here Next Sunday 

The Continentals, Portland 
YFC's teen choir, will make 
their first appearance in New- 
berg at 3T00 Sunday afternoon, 
May 9. 

Directed by Cam Floria, the 
choir will present their Sum- 
mer Symphony, singing the 
same numbers they will sing as 
they travel this summer. A 
full summer of travel and con- 
certs is being planned by the 
group. They will leave Port- 
land June 16, travel 12,000 
miles across the United States 
and into seven European coun- 
tries, and will then return to 
Portland August 29. 

The 24-voice chorale andi 18- 
piece orchestra was picked 
from high schools and colleges 
in the Portland area. 

The purpose of the group is 
to glorify God. They seek to 
do this through the message of 
songs, by encouraging various 
churches to improve their mu- 
sic departments, and through 
personal testimonies. 

The Newberg appearance is 
sponsored by the Newberg Min- 
isterial Association and will be 
free of charge. This two-hour 
music spectacular will be pre- 
sented in the First Friends

To the Editor: 

I write in regard to the stu- 
dent expression chapels we 
have had this year. I have 
come away from each with a 
single major impression — we 
are stifling the Spirit through 
our devotion to time schedules. 
We seem to feel that when the 
class bell rings, the Spirit is 
welcome to blow where it list- 
eth, but if that's in chapel, then 
it will have to blow alone. 

It is bad enough to feel that 
we can set the Spirit into mo- 
tion from 9.50 - 10:25 Tuesday 
through Friday, but even worse 
that when He does come to 
bless us we turn Him off like 
so much tap water the minute 
third period arrives. There is 
absolutely no imagining the 
work He would perform were 
we willing to sit still and let 
Him do so. 

I speak in respect to other 
areas as well as these student 
expression chapels in saying 
that if Christ is theoretically to 
be in control of our meetings 
together, why don't we allow 
Him to be just that in actuali- 
ty? You can't count your 
blessings with a stop-watch. 

Diane Ball 

To the Editor: 

I appreciated your last edi- 
torial and the fact that grade 
point averages weren't listed in 
the Crescent. It's certainly 
time we stopped playing hom- 
age to the almighty "A" and 
start to seek truth for its own 
sake. "Wisdom is the principal 
thing; therefore get wisdom: 
and with all thy getting get 
understanding." Prov. 4:7.

To the Editor: 

I have found in thorougley 
reading your papers the past 
few issues that all of a sudden 
our Crescent has become a 
"joke." In my three plus years 
at GFC I have never read a 
paper that was as "newsless" 
as yours. I really don't know 
if it is because you are incom- 
pentant, just as my spelling is, 
or perhaps there just isn't that 
much news to be printed. In 
any case why don't you just 
forget the whole lousy bit and 
chalk it up as an experience. 

If your so intent on just larn 
why ain't you out buying your 
library card instead of paying 
out a measly $1710.00 a year 
to go to GFC. It seem to me 
that the almighty GPA Is 
something to worry about. 
From the time I started school 
all I have heard was, "Get that 
GPA up as high as possible. 
You need it for graduate 

Did it occur to you that GPA 
is necessary. How else is an em- 
ployer or graduate school go- 
ing to judge "academic excel- 
lence" without ones precious 
transcript. You must realize 
and accept the fact that GPA 
counts whether you, myself, or 
anyone else likes it. 

So freshmen, let me give you 
some advise. I have learned 
one thing in four years of col- 
lege. That is, try your hardest 
and if that isn't good enough 
try some more. But as Miss 
Baker stated acquire personal 
enrichment and prepare your- 
self for your future. But please, 
for your sake, don't wait like 
I did until your fourth year to 
get a three point because by 
then it will be too late. Believe 
me I know. I have fought hard 
now for three years now try- 
ing to fight off the effect of a 
first year GPA of 1.74. I was 
indeed fortunate to make it. 
Some of you might not be. So 
again, start right now and for- 
get about that redicalous edi- 
torial. Get a decent GPA. 

Thank you, 
Roy Johnson 
Editor's Note: (sic) 



It seems that Dr. Roberts, 
upon noting all the pairs of 
red suspenders in his Friends 
Doctrine class one Friday, in- 
quired: "What is this, some 
sort of loggers' convention?" 
And Roy McConaughey quickly 
replied: "Yes, lucky loggers."

There are many trends which 
point to the fact that George

There has been much "dia- 
logue" this year about the ad- 
visability of having a full-time 
chaplain for the GF campus. 
To avoid having to hire a "gym-

given to student support for 
the construction of a sorely- 
needed chapel. 

'65-'67 Catalogs 
Now Available 

The 1965-67 George Fox col- 
lege catalogs are available from 
the public relations office in 
Wood-Mar hall. 

The new catalogs are similar 
in format to the last edition, 
but feature a different color 
scheme. Additions to the cata- 
log include several new pic- 
tures, a new map of the cam- 
pus and sample programs for 
those taking most major sub- 
jects. The number of pages has 
been increased from 42 to 48. 

Although 9,000 of the new 
catalogs have been printed, the 
administration is requesting 
that each student obtain one 
copy and keep it for reference. 
Many of the catalogs will be 
mailed to prospective students 
and to guidance counselors in 
Oregon high schools.

Fred, Jim Win ASGFC Election 

FRED GREGORY, President-elect of the ASGFC, makes his cam- 
paign speech before the student body April 23. He drew 64 per 
cent of the presidential votes. 

Fuller, Novel Campaigning 
Characterizes '65 Elections 

With a welcome step-up in competitive campaigning 
for six of the eleven student body offices, 85 per cent of 
the ASGFC went to the polls last Monday and Tuesday 
to elect the 1965-66 Student Council. 

Fred Gregory, a junior from Newberg, Oregon ma- 
joring in psychology and sociology, defeated Jon New- 
kirk, junior biology major from Yorba Linda, California 

by a substantial margin of 67 
votes for the office of student 

body president. 

The vice-presidential race, 
which was the only office re- 
quiring a primary contest, was 
lost by Del Meliza to sopho- 
more Jim Lingenfelter. Al- 
though Dei's gimmick "black 
eye" was a campaign favorite, 
Jim's experience in student gov- 
ernment and the endorsement 
of his "grandma from Kansas" 
seemed to swing the tide in his 

The closest race in the en- 
tire election came in the cam- 
paign for secretary, with soph- 
more Shirley Mewhinney nar- 
rowly winning over junior 
Sherri Moore. 

Sam Drlnnon's "hand-stand" 
appeal evidently carried some 
voting weight along with his 
specific campaign platform, for 
the Colorado sophomore won 
comfortably over junior Merlin 
Glanzman in the contest for di- 
rector of student activities. 

Junior Edith Cammack en- 
joyed a 45-vote margin in her 
campaign against classmate 
Roy McConaughey for director 

of student organizations. Jim 
Linhart won the office of Stu- 
dent Union Board chairman by 
a landslide over Keith Drahn, 
who campaigned for "color and 
beauty" in SUB. A substantial 
record of experience on the 
SUB board seemed to be the 
weighty factor in Jim's vic-

are: Lorraine Stahlnecker, 
treasurer, from Newberg, Ore-

Will Howell, director of pub-

Campus Crusade Staff to Sponsor 
Oregon Lay Institute on Evangelism 

Last year in the United 
States 2,000 individual churches 
in one major denomination 
alone did not introduce a single 
individual to Jesus Christ. Ev- 
ery day 120,000 persons die 
without saving knowledge of 
Jesus Christ. Why is this? 

Campus Crusade for Christ 
International, acting on the be- 
lief that most Christians do not 
witness for the very reason 
that they do not know how, is 
sponsoring a Lay Institute of 
Evangelism for the state of 
Oregon next week, May 2-9. 

Dr. William R. Bright, presi- 
dent of Campus Crusade for 
Christ, Int., will be" giving lec- 
tures on personal evangelism 
twice daily, and a staff of over 
40 members will conduct the 
seminar sessions. 

Special rallies are planned 
for the Sunday afternoons of 

May 2 and 9, and regular Insti- 
tute sessions are planned Mon- 
day through Friday at the Cen- 
tral Bible church, 8815 N. E. 
Glisan St., Portland, Oregon. 
The morning sessions convene 
9:30 - 11.30 a.m., and the even- 
ing sessions are scheduled for 
7:30 - 9:30 p.m. 

A fee of $5 is charged to cov- 
er the cost of lectures and sem- 
inars and to provide each stu- 
dent with a comprehensive ma- 
terials packet.

*7a Shoot o* Not <7a Shoot 

To shoot, or not to shoot : that is the question : 

Whether 'tis nobler in the job to suffer 

The cuts and bruises of long legged basketball players 

Or to take arms against a court of players. 

And by leaving escape them? To leave, to weep; 

No more : and, by that flight to say that 

The Crescent gets no pictures for the 

Next issue; 'tis a consummation 

Devoutly to be wished. To stay, to shoot; 

To shoot: perchance to hurt; ay there's the rub; 

For in that taken shot of skill what blows may come 

When tripped player comes crashing down on us, 

Must give first aid.

Traditions of May Day 

By Rick Rami 

Every year the people who are connected with 
George Fox college look forward to May Day. It has be- 
come one of the outstanding events of the school year. 
In short, it has become a tradition. Traditions are made 
of many things. What has made our May Day? 

In the year of 1913 a certain 

over the May Day festival in 
what seems to have been the 
first year that the event was 
celebrated. The event began 
with the Queen's breakfast and 
ended with a traditional folk 
dance by the "English shepherd 
girls". The costumes were early 
English as the May pole was 
wound that sunny morning. An- 
other event was the parade 
through Newberg with each 
school organization sponsoring 
a float. This parade featured 
two automobiles; one to carry 
the college president and the 
other for the mayor of New- 

During the next years it was 
a sometimes — off, sometimes — 
on affair. The year of 1916 to 
1920 saw no college May Day, 
but in 1918 Pacific college nom- 
inated a candidate for the 
Queen of Newberg's May fes- 

From 1920 to 1946 the event 
was biennial, featuring Royalty, 
a tennis tournament, and of 
course, the winding of a May 
pole. The parade, which was 
one of the main features, went 
out of existence by 1932. 

The royalty over the years 
has included several people who 
are well known around the col-

Italian background music 
will be playing during the en-

upon their arrival at the ban- 

lege at the present. Among the

Gory and Dave to Study 
At Whittier in Copenhagen 

Two GFC students will be spending the first semes- 
ter of the 1965-66 school year in Denmark studying at 
Whittier college in Copenhagen. 

Scheduled to leave New York by jet on September 
20 are Gary Sweatt, Roseville, California, and Dave 
Wallis, LaHabra, California, both juniors. 

Whittier college annually sends a selected number 

of students to Copennagen to 

study at their college at the 
University of Copenhagen. 
Classes for the American stu- 
dents are all conducted in Eng- 
lish, with professors from both 
Whittier and the University of 
Copenhagen instructing. 

the subjects 
Gary and Dave will study are 
European art and literature, 
contemporary politics, Scandin- 
avian literature, educational 
system in Denmark, and a 
course tracing the development 
of Denmark into a social wel- 
fare state. 

The European system of ex- 
ams is used — one at mid-term 
and another at the end of the 
semester — with no quizzes in 
between. Students usually live 
in Danish homes during their 
course of study as guests of 

Requirements for the pro- 
gram include a minimum GPA

new situations. 

Gary's reasons for applying 
for European study, besides the 
expressed desire to see Europe 
and meet people, include "look- 
ing into business opportunities 
through international rela- 
tions." Also, he plans to do 
definite research on Scandin- 
avian folk music. 

"I want to see a real blonde, 
with real blue eyes," says Dave 
in explaining his reasons for 
going. He, incidentally, also 
wants to gain insight into the 
character of the European 

Gary and Dave intend to see 
a lot of Europe as well as to 
study. A pre-school tour last- 
ing two weeks will take them 
to London, Paris, Versailles, 
Amsterdam, and southern Den- 
mark. For the mid-term break 
they plan a trip to West Ber- 
lin with the possibility of see- 
ing East Berlin as well through 
the temporary exchange pro- 
gram of the authorities there. 

Christmas recess will include 
seeing the Mediterranean, ski- 
ing in the Swiss Alps, and vis- 
iting Spain. And for week-ends 
during the semester they plan 
to bicycle through the country- 

At the close of the semester 
the two fellows intend to travel 
further in Europe and perhaps 
arrive home sometime in March 
before the spring term begins.

Baseball and track are both on tap for the

week-end. Baseball will come first with a 10:00 
contest with Concordia. The Quakers have a good 
head of steam after taking both ends of a home 
and away series with Multnomah School of the 
Bible. The question which still remains is the 
Quakers' hitting which although looking weak, 
is beginning to pick up. 

At 2:00 Saturday afternoon GFC will play 
host to WCCC members. Coach Craven's squad 
looms as a heavy favorite in what is likely a pre- 
view of the conferenc meet. 

Barring injuries on either squad, both the 
cindermen and the diamond corps can provide 
exciting and worthwhile entertainment.

On Thursday, April 22, the 
Quakers endeavored to provide 
competition for Pacific univer-

fact that Pacific has one of the 
best teams in its history and 
now is on top in the Northwest
